Camera to back up 5D Mark III

I shall be using the 5D all the time, if I get one, so it is only to have a body around in case of disaster. Is a 650D acceptable in the event of a crisis? Is it so far removed from a 5D that it's pointless? I can't afford a 6D as well, a 7D is quite pricey and would not be used much.

Any point in having a 650D in the bag as back-up and for the occasional travel shot etc?

(I do gather that the RAW buffer is poor)
